Turns out Roberston and Paul have a second time transport, and attack Nick and Lisa's plane on arrival in the near-past. Lisa is killed and the plane brought down, so Future-Nick tries to get to Past-Nick before Future-Robertson can. Past-Lisa is diverted from Past-Nick's demonstration and ends up investigating Future-Lisa's death in a plane crash, then she and Past-Nick meet up and start time traveling to figure out what the hell is going on. Meanwhile, Future-Robertson and Future-Paul abduct Future-Nick (and a gormless mechanic) and inexplicably take them back to the Revolutionary War to kill them.

** Doubles as EpicFailEpicFail as he manages to drive about 100 feet before crashing into a pile of bicycles and flipping the car on its side. The actual owner of the car easily catches up to him, ''on foot''. Nick then hops on a bicycle, which is what he should have done in the first place.

* CloseEnoughTimeline: Apparently, the deaths of several extra minutemen and the appearance of a wrecked plane and several automatic weapons in 1777 had no appreciable effect on history.

* GeniusBruiser: Subverted - Nick looks like a bodybuilding nerd, but gets beat up fairly easily and doesn't seem nearly as smart as inventing the time machine would imply.

* HeroStoleMyBike: Nick steals a car and immediately crashes it because he doesn't drive cars. He does better on the bicycle he steals next. He then steals a ''boat''.

* TakeOurWordForIt: We only see a grainy, computer-screen image of future Rutland's magnificent skyline, while Lisa comments that "it looks like there was a war here" in the bad future, despite a conspicuous lack of rubble, craters, bullet holes, bodies, derelict tanks... clearly, the film didn't have the budget for anything else.
** The "normal future" scenes were shot in Burlington - Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks are clearly visible through the windows in a way they aren't in Rutland (which is south of Lake Champlain) at a Papa Gino's that didn't make it far past the year 2000.
